Description

CALF WEANER #8 - PRIMITIVE Good Condition Steel - ANTIQUE FARM or RANCHING TOOL

This collection of Antique Calf Weaners took 10 years for me to assemble. I guarantee that they will cause a lot of interest among your city guests when they are displayed on a wall. Don't tell them what they are….most people tend to think they are some sort of medieval torture chamber device. Actually, they did inflict pain on the mother cow but, then, that was the idea because due to the pain she would not allow the calf near enough to nurse and thus, the calf was weaned. Some calf weaners were fitted to the calf's nostrils and some had straps or chains. They were designed to allow the calf to graze but not to gain the mother's teat without causing her pain which rewarded the calf with a hopefully, gentle kick.

One is dated but this is rare because most calf weaners were simple farm tools, not important enough to emboss. I guarantee that most are from the 1930's era. Note that you can still buy calf weaners…a lot of them are now made of plastic.

(To save listing time, I will use the same introduction for all the listings. Each listing will have a number and slightly different Title and some calf weaners will be sold in sets or pairs. Consider buying a few different ones to make a great wall display.)

This is probably the newer of the Calf Weaners in this collection. The steel is still in very good condition and the piece could still be used. Removing the cotter pin allows you to open the nose grips and put it in the calf's nose. The rounded steel plate with the points swings freely and this allows the calf to graze easily. It measures 5 1/4 inches X 4 7/8 inches.

Price is $24.00 Shipping is $8.00.

I gladly refund any shipping charges that exceed the postage and money spent on boxes and packing materials. Of course, I will combine orders to create larger refunds. Your purchases will be shipped within 3 working days.
